Donna_Sucked and We All Know It -
Subject: Overrated Show
Classic show but sickeningly over hyped over the years. That said, great Dew for this time period.
Donna as usual ruins many songs. She even admitted - and everyone in the band knew this - she cannot sing on stage. She was passable in the studio but had severe pitch problems live, Garcia said so, Weir said so, Lesh said so, even Donna said so. We had to suffer through that era as fans, I saw only 30 or 40 shows when Donna was in the band out of the 330-plus shows I saw, most were between '79-'85, first was in '72. But man was she awful live. I rememebr one show in '77 at the Palladium in NYC we had people covering their ears she was screeching so horribly. Weir said Brent was by far the best vocalist they had and that his singing was horribly missed when he OD'd. I agree with Weir.
This is the best recording of this show, the one we've liked since the foot locker auction in the late-'80's.
Sorry kid, you're the idiot...I forgot more about this band than you will ever know..hundreds of live shows starting in '72...and yes learn what the actual band members say. And quit ragging on others, you come across very young and dumb and rude. Like Stratocaster - man that kid needs to see a shrink! Again, great show, sickeningly over hyped, and those of us actually seeing shows on this tour know the deal.
If someone said: "We are putting you on that rocket ship over there for a 10-year voyage to Mars, and you only get to bring a single recording of any kind", I would bring a matrix version of Cornell '77. 'Nuf said.
Subject: The reviewer below is a lost sailor
always one jerk in every crowd, this dude must have eaten a bad veggie burrito...classic show, worthy of five stars...
also, the fact that you need to qualify how much of an expert you are by how many shows you've seen is the true mark of an idiot...yes Donna wasn't so great on stage, blah blah blah, her performance should not detract from this show's rating...still five stars...don't bother with some dumb retort about how you saw shows back in 72 or you read some interview with Wavy Gravy or that you met Garcia in 75 and he flicked a cigarette butt at you because you were annoying, nobody cares...just review the source and make performance observations, man...
Subject: Donna D
Anyone who says Donna's voice took away from the band ( post 1976) can suck it. She is beautiful and I love her. If anything Phil (post 1972) was vocally holding them back and even sometimes Brent. Thats right I said it, Brent was holding them back.
PS this has got to be a standard of Jack Straw and many other songs
Dancin is insane! Yeah Jer
Subject: BB FTW
Betty Board for the win!
This version is CLASSIC. Nothing compares. Bettys ear for music balance is unmatched. Untouchable
The show is 5 stars. Sound 5 stars. Nothing makes me SCREAM in this show like some older 71 stuff. IE: hidden classic- 1971-10-24 I listen with my bose headset and the bass is off the charts. 1971-12-10 cough.

Subject: where is filler from ?
of course a great show
where is the filler from ?
Subject: Good show, but the MTX is better
Show: Great. Not the best S>F ever, not the best NFA ever, not the best St. Steve ever, but definitely the best Morning Dew and Row Jimmy ever, and everything else is played flawlessle.
Sound: This SBD is flat. Concert recordings are like women, you want them full and richly endowed. Get the AUD or MTX by clicking on "check for other copies" above.
Show: 5. Sound: 3. 4.
Seriously I listened to this show and never looked back! Phil bombs me to oblivion.
"CAUSE YOU REALLY GET ME HIGH!"
Subject: make a cd copy
Can anyone tell me how to make a cd copy of this stream?
I just crapped my pants. Da Best. Unbelievable.
will capture the stream as one long track...other freeware can splice it if you want
Subject: Were you there?
I'm just in the very beginning stages/brainstorming a book on the concert from 5.8.77.
Widely considered to be the best show the band ever played, I'm hoping to gather enough photographs, recollections and other assorted information to turn the book into an oral biography. But of a show, not a person.
If you were there and would like to tell me about the show/what you recall/what you saw please be in touch. No memory is too small!
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subject: Barton Hall--Ithaca NY
Supreme recording...doesnt get any better. I can only imagine this show. Been to Cornell U. many times at later dates...what a place....is there a way to download this to format CD..anyone help? have windows 7 is this possible cause i dont know how..tell me...
Subject: stumbled upon this on Grooveshark
This is the best Scarlet/Fire I have ever heard.
Interestingly, it is a year and a half before Shakedown Street (Nov 78) was released.
First of all to the reviewer below if you want a copy of this on cd email me at email@example.com and ill gladly hook you up. Second of all the sound quality here is incredible...even though this is a killer show and widely believed to be their "best" I still think there are better shows out there. This one is great though and definetely worth the listen

Jerry Phil and Keith are on and I mean ON. Makes for a legend of a show. The Dew of course is one of the best ever, really that is what puts this show over the top. Plus the sound on this recording is most kind.
So I was reading though the reviews and some asshole writes that Barton was a "rather uninspired show." Right.....I'm not saying it was the best ever or any of that shit, but uninspired???? When you look up asshole in the dictionary the guy that wrote that line is pictured right there with its definition. What a fuckin' joke. If you don't like the Dead that's fine. But, if that's the case, don't bother to comment.

Great show. Is Bobby playing slide?

Subject: their friends were already horribly smashed
or at least I would have been, or bug eyed. What can you say? It is a reference point to go to when you need to see what a tight show should be. I wouldn't call it overrated, like many dare to be different's do, I would say classic and one of a few that holds the true 5 star rating. Listen and enjoy!!! Peace my brothers and sisters, in the dead's name we pray, amen.
Subject: From the First Deadhead book I read
Its like when several have a race, and after a long time they stop and ask , who won. The answer is, everyone wins, we all shall win prizes. This concert should satisfy all.
Subject: Me too!
It's gets a cinco on Cinco de Mayo from me too! Thanks, Betty!

Subject: holy smokes!
How come this recording, now made famous in the New York Times as the best GD concert recording ever, has not been reviewed until now?
Oh well, I'll give it a 5 anyway
